“A great holiday in The Shantara Resort Port Douglas”
Reviewed January 2, 2011

The staff were excellent and the 3 pool deck apartments we had booked were superb and great value for money.A short walk to the main street and all the action, shops cafe's and nightlife were there. Would definitely recommend The Shantara Resort for a holiday short or long.

I'm not sure what else I can say...... these were lovely apartments in a good location. They were spacious, very clean and had very good self catering facilities (we stayed in a one-bedroom aprtment). I would definately stay here again.

Peaceful and quiet. Would recommend the pool deck rooms. Good location but you have to walk or drive to buy meals, which we were happy to do (it is not far), as that is what helps keep the place quiet. Very helpful and friendly staff.

We had a great time in Port Douglas. Our daughter's wedding was fabulous. A large part of this success can be attributed to the great accomodation provided by Shantara and staff.
Thank you all!
We will be back!

We stayed at Shantara for our first wedding anniversary, and now we'll never stay anywhere else in Port Douglas. The resort is perfectly positioned just far enough away (but still walking distance) from the main street to be in a quiet location, and yet close enough to walk to the beach too.

The rooms are very modern and the furniture looks recently new. The resort itself was built in 2007 and is still very fresh and VERY clean - which I can only attribute to good management.

The staff are very helpful and know the area, restaurants and other attractions inside out which was great because there is so much to do at Port Douglas.

Resort was perfect for our requirements. Peaceful, comfortable, high quality apartment and private. The added bonus was that it is close enough to the town to walk everywhere and the beach is even closer.

My wife and I stayed for seven days and were shown to our room , with the facilities being professionaly explained by Marianna (Manager). Our apartment (one bedroom -pool view) was comfortable and spacious with ample air conditioning and storage.The location is a convenient five minutes walk to the shopping centre, marina and the beach, with umbrellas provided if it was wet.
We used both pools(with each being subtley different) and whilst we did not use the BBQ we noticed that it was kept clean even though being regularly utilised.
The only improvement suggestion we could make is that there could be some more outdoor lounges provided, as one day we went to sit around the pool only to find all lounges in use(and this is in low season).
